Are your dresses Ethical?
Running our business ethically is very important to us. We very carefully source vintage and new fabrics for our dresses, using fair trade fabrics where available and aim to buy British sourced fabrics and components where we can.
We ask our suppliers to check the factories used to weave thier fabrics for welfare.
We are not perfect, we have made a promise to continue our reasearch into ethical and fair trade fabrics and to making improvements to the ecology of our dresses.
